Of course, all my dear friends at BlueNC know who I am already. Your tireless efforts and support helped make this amazing campaign.
I'm going to be brief with this post, since I have a lot of work to do tonight and I hope you all already know what you mean to me. You're truly good people, and I thank you for that on behalf of all the hard working families in the 8th District.
I just released this statement I wanted to share with you.

"The fight for the future of this District is too important to postpone another day. That's why I'm running for Congress in 2008 starting right now.
After today's recounts, I offer Congressman Hayes a belated congratulation for his victory now that the votes have been counted.
When I started my run for Congress I said it's not about who you are or how much money you have, it's about what you stand for. The folks who voted for me knew I stood with them.
And while the 2006 election is officially behind us, I recognize that the future is already upon us. My vision of the future is simple, help those who have been pushed aside by the Washington politicians and special interests.
I offer Congressman Hayes my prayers that he return safely to Washington and that he and his family have a blessed holiday."
You of all people know exactly what that means. Let's go again! I'm energized and ready to meet those 327 or so voters we missed on election day many times over during the next two years. Together, we can do this.
Thanks so much for all you do, and God bless.
